And on a special note, I just want to thank Latino-Review readers for their loyalty to this web site. It was exactly two years ago that I first joined the site as a day-to-day news writer for this site. Over the two year span, I wrote more than 2,000 articles for this site ranging from news stories, reviews and interviews. I even had the privileged to interview and met over 100 different movie and television actors and directors. In the end, daily writing took its toll and it is time to concentrate on other activities other than blogging full-time. I will remain on staff as a part-time blogger, but you’ll see more articles from me in television and video games from time-to-time. And I will definitely remain on board to provide this site comprehensive coverage from special events such as CinemaCon, WonderCon and San Diego Comic-Con. Thanks for reading!
